4/12 - Lancaster, PA (Eastern PA) - MVP Sports
I like the idea of a second markation for location, as states like NY or PA (or CA and Texas) might have small town gamestores, but nobody knows if they are close or 6 hours away.
I think I prefer having the location first. It put things in order of importance for me. For example, if I see a tournament thread title that starts with Bejing, CN, I know that I'm not likely to be going to that tournament regardless of the date.
I don't think that the second bit for locations is really necessary. If anywhere in the title is possibly in driving distance, I'm going to look up how far it is anyway.
My preferred format would be something like this:
- [USA-CA Los Angeles | 4/2/2016] Vintage for power at Sam's Games]
- [Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas | 9/4 - 9/6 ] Vintage Side Events at GPDFW]
It might also be a good idea to specify whether proxies are allowed directly in the title. EG:
- [USA-CA Los Angeles | 4/2/2016 | 15 Proxy] Vintage for power at Sam's Games]
- [Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas | 9/4 - 9/6 | SANCTIONED!] Vintage Side Events at GPDFW]
